Merry Christmas Everyone

It's Christmas few days from now :-). Me, hubby and my son will be leaving Cebu tomorrow night for our flight going back to France. We'll be arriving in Paris monday early in the morning so yes, we'll be spending Christmas with my inlaws. Hubby and I have so many plans for next year and one will be to move in another apartment/house that's more interesting to us yet much cheaper compared to our recent place. I don't really care where it will be but I want a place with a spacious and modern kitchen coz I mostly spend my time there. And for New Year and if you happen to be here in bordeau, I accept orders and will deliver until 20h of the 31st.  Will accept orders starting December 28. Advance Merry Christmas everyone.

Android Security

I'd like to know how will I be able to detect if someone tries to hack my gadget? I saw something popping up and this is kinda weird. I never experienced this before so I'm thinking of this Android Security. Have you guys tried this? Is it effective? I'm still in the process of my investigation but your personal experiences will surely help me a lot. I saw this online only few minutes ago. So what do you guys think? Take it or leave it?

My Gulay!

My son, Raphaël surprised me this afternoon when he told me that he wants to have a flute like Antoine. True that we attended a party last saturday and my friend's son inlaw had one but I never thought that he'll be interested with this music instrument because he never even touched it and said NO when the kids offered him to blow it. Well, I've only noticed that he loves to sing and dance and loves music instruments too but just the basic and simple one's. When I told this to hubby, he said good if Raphaël is really interested. He even think that maybe we should tell my inlaws' about it and maybe it will be a good idea if they offer Raphaël student flutes at wwbw. My gulay!

Yeah I know! I'm supposed to post fashion entries here but because my personal photographer is not in the mood to do it, I have no choice but to switch into something else but turn to a subject that kikayness has to do. What else? Makeup. We all love to put on makeup and do i. I'm into Mac Cosmetics for the past 3 weeks. Honestly, I patronize any local brands but because of the bad service I had 2 weeks ago or last week from a store, I switched to Mac and thanks to that bad experience because I'm always smiling everytime I go out from Mac store now and always find my so-called bonheur. They speak english, we understand eachother so well either I speak english or french and they have everything that I need when it comes to make up. So yes, I'm smiling from ear to ear.
I bought 2 eyeshadows from Mac yesterday and I love it. I need something that I could carry easily during my vacay in Pinas next month so these eyeshadows I got are simply marvelous. Photo below

Eyeshadows from Mac: Satin taupe & Concrete
Eye liner: Maybelline & Make Up Forever
Eyebrows : Dipdow from Mac

So, how do you gals find it? Off for me to look for eggcrate dog beds and will then go to bed. Happy weekend everyone!

Sunday Stealing: Who Are you? Part 3 & 4 – Is it over yet?

Part 3: Past

34. What do you consider the most important event of your life so far?
- the day I say "I Do" to my husband and the day I gave birth to my son

35. What do you consider your greatest achievement?
- greatest achievement will be a mother. It's a very difficult task but so far, I guess I'm at the right track

36. What is your greatest regret?
- hmmmm I  didn't finish college

37. What is the most evil thing you have ever done?
- cutting classes back in HS lolz

38. When was the time you were the most frightened?
- hmmmmmm

39. What is your best memory?
- where I am right now. Everyday is best for me coz I grow better and better as a wife, mom and individual

Part 4: Beliefs And Opinions

40. Are you basically optimistic or pessimistic?

41. What is your greatest fear?
- losing someone in my family. I'm not ready for that if someone in my family dies

42. What are your religious views?
- I'm catholic

43. State a random opinion?
- just an opinion ok? I find it stupid or rediculous when people said that you're a true catholic or christian if you go to church every sunday. What's the purpose of going to the church and yet, your attention isn't 100% there coz you're busy looking at other's outfit, how pretty or ugly or handsome that person is, or you're curious what brand of shoe is he/she wearing? For me, talking to our Almighty Father is accessible. You may do it at home or whereever you are but the most important thing is that you're 100% of yourself when you talk to HIM, you're talking to Him sincerely

44. What are your views on sex?
- try something new and positions with your partner, that way sex will always be fun

45. Are you able to cook?

I still have this in my mind and I'm curious of seeing him/her to show her/him where I am right now and what I'm capable of doing at

47. Do you believe in the existence of soul mates and/or true love?

48. What do you believe makes a successful life?
- patience and hardwork

49. How honest are you about your thoughts and feelings?
- 80%. I'm not that tactless and sometimes, it takes a lot of courage for me to express my feelings or thoughts out

50. Do you have any biases or prejudices?
- no, it's not good

51. Is there anything you absolutely refuse to do under any circumstances? Why do you refuse to do it?
- hypocrisy

52. Who or what, if anything, would you die for (or otherwise go to extremes for)?
Friends, family, and my people.
- family above all. Honestly speaking, I'm ready to die for any of them including my own family also. I even work hard for them coz I wanna give them everything that they need and want without thinking of myself. For my parents for example, they're not into expensive stuffs but I really researched for hearing aid reviews and bought them the best of the best thing that they need coz I want what's best for them

Strange Summer

Because the weather has been very bad these last days and it has been raining also and cold. Imagine, it's summer time and we have to wear boots and a jacket? Unbelievable! Good thing I haven't planted any flowers yet in the pots that I bought last month or else, all my flowers would be dead by now. For my outdoor furnitures, yes, all of them are dirty. I have to clean my rustic tables once the weather will be good and invite friends to come over for dinner or have a tea time. I'm missing the sun, doing a barbecue and just eat outside.

Bernard James / Bernard Arana a.k.a BJ is actually a friend of mine years ago and I do know how good he is when it comes to web designing. And because I need to have a website on my own, I asked him if he could create one for me. The conversation went fine and had agreed on the price. I immediately bought my domain name and the web host provider that way he could start my personal website whenever he's free. See? I didn't gave him any deadlines or anything. I told him that he could start it whenever he's ready and that was back in december 2011. Sent him my partial payment worth 5,000 pesos via his friend's paypal account in the name of Romivil Cayabyab Jr. carrying the paypal account He, Bernard James Arana, confirmed that he got the payment and promised me that he'll give me the layout a week after. Sent him emails since then until last week and I heared nothing, also texted him and called him and no feedback from him. He's eating my patience so I published in my facebook account his name and he deleted his FB account. It only shows that he has bad motives and has no plans of giving me back my money. Why run away if you're serious? If you're reading this blog MR. BERNARD JAMES ARANA, why not send me a note saying if you want to continue to work with me or not and I'll hire somebody else. You destroyed the trust I gave you and the friendship we had. May God bless you.

Beware people and spread it to your friends, that way there'll be no other victim. I hate people who love to fool around  his fellows. Here are his infos:

PHONE :+63 9165136042 
                                            EMAIL :

Here's the proof of transaction that he got the payment via his friend's paypal account and his friend, himself confirmed that he forwarded my payment to MR. ARANA

Depression Strikes Again

I feel down once again even if I don't have to. Haaay, this passion of mine is really testing my patience and these stupid people around me all the time. Why can't they just accept it and be happy for me instead? I've been trying to fight this battle since the last quarter of 2011 and it's the same thing. Sometimes, I feel like giving up already and thinks that maybe it doesn't belong to me. Hubby keeps on encouranging me and has been so patience on me. I express my anger in him even if he's not involve. I'm unfair and I know that but this is very difficult for me. I love what I do and it makes me happy but people around me are against with my passion. Why? And why? I need to see signs if I'll continue or I'll give up this project. For the mean time, I'll go buy for Clear Globe String lights at my fave online store. Please show me the sign so soon coz I need to make a rapid decision.

A Year Now

I'm happy that hubby stops smoking cigarette but instead, he uses the electric one. I didn't pushed him to stop but he, himself, decided to do it. It's been a year now and seriously, he looks healthier and brighter eversince. It costs us less as well coz the liquids are much cheaper compared to the real cigarette.

I'm Getting This

I might get gps tracking from anytime soon. I find it practical and very helpful. My friends told me that many times coz they got it for their kids and for themselves too. This small box will help me locate where my car is and alerts me when I exceeded the speed limit. This is what I need as my personal control especially during summer.

Will Be Performing

Got this call just few minutes ago and yes, it's confirmed! I'll have another client and will be dancing this July. I'm loving my passion (bellydancing). Last friday I danced at the marocain restaurant and they offered me to perform there as replacement and to dance every Fridays when they have big clients. Bellydance is fun and I love it. This call I got will be for the home for the aged at the center. My job will be to dance twice maximum but it will be more of giving them a lecture or giving them ideas like what's bellydancing, how it started, the different styles come from where, the accessories and etc. I like it when I impart my knowledge about this art coz at the moment, egyptians don't seem to care about it and this tradition of them seems to disappear. Too bad. I'll be showing them some moves and will give one personal gift to give to grandma who rocks. It will be fun but this makes me miss my grandma :-(.

Monday, 16 April 2012


I've been a multitasker for the past two weeks. I've been doing this and that, left and right professionally and personally. I wanted to prove myself that I can do many things at the same time and so far, I manage to do it. I have my very strict time mmanagement and I'm just lucky enough that I have a week or even 2 weeks free from work. It simply means that bonding moment with my son and spoil my boys with my cooking. I love spending my time at the kitchen with my son and I can sense that he loves it as well. He plays like a chef when he's alone in his bedroom and serves me his plastic foods and tells me "maman, c'est bon (mama it's yummy)". It's very rewarding for me coz he's very expressive now. Oh well, hubby tells me to take a pause and look for sunless spray tan for myself or reward myself to something but going out with my out is simply priceless.

My Newest Addiction

I'm a certified fan and a big addict of Instagram. I tried it 2 days ago and I can't get off my hands now with my phone taking any photos. I guess hubby will try it also but he has to check if this app is available in his Samsung phone. He got jealous when he saw how beautiful my photos are especially the music instruments of my son.

I'll Seriously Get It

To get a phone booster very soon and I need it badly. It will be very useful for me as I don't always bring my lappy with me when we're on vacation. I always use my phone to check my mails online and my blogs but I noticed that even here in France, there are areas where signal is very weak. It's disappointing especially when I have important things to do. Grgrgr

Better Communication

..with my family. I am able to do audio teleconferencing with them now when our scheds meet and web chat too. Mom is very happy when she sees my son roaming around the house especially when Raphaël does faces infront of the cam. How time flies and I'm missing them all. I'm hoping to come back home this year and hopefully my son will be celebrating his birthday there as well. Be able to bond with everyone, with his cousins, and have a nice kiddie party. True that I always organize a party for him here at home but party in PI is still the best, affordable and a dream come true.

Another Eman Costume

I bought another Eman Zaki costume weeks ago and I love how it is. The fitting is absolutely right to my measurements, it feels so comfortable when wearing it and it's just perfect. Eman Zaki is one of my favorite egyptian designers. Simplissime style and that's how my style is. For us dancers, each costume reflects to the personality of a person. I prefer simple style and not so much bling blings. I like mermaid style skirts in general because it gives shape when turning and it shows every single details of the movements when dancing. Though I was hesitant at first because of the color but I finally love it and consider it as one of my favorite costumes. Oh well, time for lab furnaces now.

Mission: Redecoration

This is how our 2nd room/office room looks like. So messy because of me. I've been saying that I'm going to redecorate this room to give it a life but until now, I still don't manage to do it. Soooo lazy! Hubby's complaining because the table is full of so many stuffs coming from me of course plus, I do my maquillage here too. At tne end of the day, table turns out to be dirty with make-up marks. I'll change our office table. That's the promise I made for myself but for the moment, I'm earning my energy for a super make-over for this room. Wish me luck for that.

Finally Have It

I've been so strange since February came in. Even my friends at the school found me really kikay. Mostly of them have said that I have changed coz I always have my make-up on like a pro with false lashes and I am more fashionable now. Is it for the good or for the worst? Hubby said it's for the worst side coz I'm spending a lot lolz. But seriously, I've been dying to have these palettes for a long time already and I finally have it. Honestly, I feel very happy and a new person everytime I hold my brushes and play with the colors. No idea why though. The same thing for clothes. I love solid and bold colors now. Will be posting for more photos in the next couple of weeks coz I haven't uploaded yet the pics in my pc. For the mean time, I'm eyeing for accessories like pandora beads. Of course, fashion won't be complete without accessories.

What d'ya Think?

Of this? Nice right? I've been thinking of redecorating our terrace and voila, I found this photo online. This inspires me actually and I wanna convert mine to this. Ours isn't that wide nor very long but just an average size. On the other hand, I'm hesitating of doing it also because this is not our property and if we move one day, all these expenditures will be for nothing but this is really tempting me and our terrace is very dry. Hubby's telling me to look for Kangol Hats instead of looking at this photo all the time but what can I do? It's just so lovely.

Happy New Year 2012!!

Wishing everyone a prosperous New Year 2012!!!! May this year brings us good health, job, more love, peace and lots and lots of money and less disasters in this world.

Wow! Unbelievable and it's so fast. How's your New Year folks? Mine went well lastnight and even today. Celebrated it with my inlaws here at home despite of lossing my hubby's grandma who died last December 26 and was buried last Dec. 30. Life goes on even if everyone is still shocked of what happened.

On the other hand, I am happy that I was able to chat my family back home and saw them via skype. Seeing their smiling faces and saying thank you made me teary-eyed yesterday. It makes my heart melt that they appreciate my simple gestures for them. I can't wait to see them next year and that's the main reason why I work so hard coz I have so many plans for them when I get back home. I wish to accomplish these goals with the help of our Almighty Father.

Anyway, I was reading the prediction of an astrologist via yahoo and it says that I'll be lucky in the engineering field. Hmmm, I might try my luck and search for Network Engineer Jobs. This sounds strange but who knows?
